It's all to play for between the two teams from central England in the second leg at Villa Park on January 28.

Villa, meanwhile, will be without Drinkwater as he is cup-tied from his loan spell at Burnley and Smith insists the deal was a gamble worth taking.

"We had to learn lessons after the goals we gave away at Villa Park, where we were poor".

'The incident was unfortunate, it cost us a lot more time than we thought - us and him, of course - and in that time we got reasonably good value from the team with points on the board'.

Iheanacho, who struggled for game time at the start of the season, has now scored six goals in eight appearances across all competitions.

Hesky believes Iheanacho's touch and finish against Aston Villa was great.

"The manager wants us to press high, with real intensity and that's what I try and do when I come on the pitch", he continued.

"Over two ties it was always going to be tough and to get to a final you have to suffer, but the boys are confident". "He has been unlucky in that he is up against Jamie Vardy who is on fire, so he hasn't played that much", Heskey added.

Former Blues boss Mauricio Sarri played him for only 30 minutes in their Community Shield defeat to Manchester City last season, and Frank Lampard has no interest in him either.

He seized Marvelous Nakamba's wayward header before testing Orjan Nyland, then saw his low drive blocked by Villa's keeper moments later.

Vikings get dominated in playoff loss to 49ers
Running back Dalvin Cook was held to just 26 all-purpose yards, and the Vikings were limitedto a 2-of-12 mark on third downs. It didn't matter that the Vikings were the team that ended the Saints' season - Thomas took open joy in watching them lose.


Anwar El Ghazi was forced into operating as a false No 9 and in doing the job diligently, which included delivering the cross that led to Guilbert's goal, he symbolised the noble effort to the cause delivered by a weakened, patched-up side.

And Villa should have increased their lead just before the break when Jack Grealish whipped in a teasing free-kick from the left.

"All in all it was a really good away performance".

Leicester's pressure finally told in the 74th minute.

By their own free kick, Douglas Luiz was robbed by Choudhury and Vardy found Iheanacho.
